FS in meeting with Primorsky Territory Governor (with photo)

     The Financial Secretary, Mr John C Tsang, today (September 10) held a meeting with the Primorsky Territory Governor, Mr Vladimir Miklushevskiy, in Vladivostok before concluding his visit to Russia.
     During the meeting, both sides exchanged views on enhancing bilateral trade between Hong Kong and Russia and agreed that co-operation could be strengthened on various fronts such as the export of agricultural products, transport and infrastructure, housing construction, tertiary education, financial investment and tourism.
     Mr Tsang said, "Since enterprise services of Hong Kong meet high international standards while Russia is a huge market with vast resources, there is great room for complementarity between the two places, especially Primorsky Territory in the far-east region, which is only four hours' flight time from Hong Kong. There should be good potential for growth in bilateral trade."
     Mr Miklushevskiy agreed with Mr Tsang and said that he had a plan for sending a business delegation to Hong Kong to enhance mutual understanding and seek co-operation opportunities.
     Mr Tsang had lunch with the Deputy Minister of Regional Development of the Russian Federation, Mr Sergey Darkin. They discussed exporting seafood to Hong Kong as well as distributing Russian seafood to other parts of Asia via Hong Kong.
     Mr Tsang will leave Russia tonight and return to Hong Kong tomorrow (September 11).
